And now abide faith, hope and love, these three, but the greatest is love. I Corinthians 13:13
To abide is to remain, to dwell, or to make ones abode and for us as believers we are to live with faith, hope and love. This is the divine nature of God, inherited by those who receive Jesus as Savior and Lord and shone to all the world that Christ is truly in us, our hope and their's too of glory!
Faith and hope are linked together and work as a team for us to believe and receive the promises of God. Faith is the substance with which we believe and hope is the expectation of our request to God. Faith and hope are the fabric of the supernatural covering that surrounds our life, given by God and give testimony to the world that we belong to Him.
The greatest gift that God has given is love, the ability to see through a person's inabilities and see the supernatural potential to overcome their circumstances and live in His perfect will and the abundant life He has given!
"And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as we are one; "I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me." John 17:22,23
